ve similar tempermental. >> woodruff: what does that say and though throw in john brennan. >> i think the chuck hagel thing, 579 cabinet officer notice history of the united states, and a grand total of nine nominees have been rejected by the united states senate in an up or down vote and exactly one since 1989 and two since 1959. i means that's all. so the idea of chuck hagel being rejected and the late john to youer who was rejected as secretary of defense, former senator there were large questions about his ethical dealings in business and his personal behavior toward women, and his personal kpkptment. and there is none of that with chuck hagel. i mean there is no scandal. there is no background that's going to come out and bite. so i think will you-- he's not the first enlisted man. bill perry who is bill clinton's first secretary of defense was briefly buthen became an officer. he is a co veteran. i think it is interesting, david mentioned john kerry. john kerry, jim webb, dan ino way died, jim webb left voluntarily, john kerry will leave. they mr. only four members of the united
